World poverty: capitalism's crime against humanity
I'm doing Real Work (TM) today, but I realized I was one commit away from adding the console version to Racktris's master branch. So that bit's merged!
Get it while it's hot:
$ git clone https://gitlab.com/dustyweb/racktris.git
$ cd racktris
$ racket racktris.rkt -c
The -c is for --console! :)

Tax havens are destroying the earth
<<Deforestation in the Amazon and widespread illegal fishing have both been linked to tax havens, according to a new study.
Some 68% of the investments tracked in the Amazon came from companies based in countries where no tax is paid.
When it comes to illegal fishing, around 70% of known vessels are registered in tax havens.
Tax avoidance schemes say the authors, are essentially subsidising the destruction of the environment. >>
